Rubber belts are uniform bands made of both natural and synthetic rubber and
are widely used in various applications. Rubber Belts are available in
various sizes and shapes and used for multitude of purposes. These belts
include a wide range of rubber belts. Rubber belts can be classified as :
- Anti-static belts: They contain no static prone
materials like carbon.
- Anti-vibration belts: They minimize vibrations in
conveyor systems and the vibrations slowly abrade and stretch belts.
- Armored belts: They have crosswise insertions in
the cover, made of materials like steel. This is to decrease tearing by
sharp conveyed objects.
- Cable belts: They are reinforced with cables.
- Endless round belts: They are single piece belts.
They are designed to stretch and do not require belt tension.
- Fin belts: They have fin-like structures which are
protruded from the belts themselves. They are useful in applications
such as catching containers and moving them into boxes.
- Multi-speed belts: They are used in variable speed
applications such as automobiles and snowmobiles.
- Twisted belts: They are used to replace endless
round belts that are damaged or destroyed.
- V-belts: They have a v-shaped profile having
different variations of the v-belt.
These rubber belts have high strength, good flexibility and elasticity.
These are used in factories, mines, docks, metallurgical industries,
airports, irrigation equipment, power transmission equipment, wood cutting
and in various other applications for industry and agriculture.
